Coffee, that bewitching beverage of a thousand flavors, often takes us on a unique gustatory journey, marked by the history and traditions of its producers. Grain de Chance, a coffee both sweet and chocolaty, offers an incomparable sensory experience, while telling a fascinating story through its origins.

Tasting profile

Grain de Chance is a coffee that's sure to delight with its sweet-chocolate profile and unrivalled smoothness. Designed for espresso, this blend is easy to adjust and quite permissive in its extraction. Savored dark, you'll discover all the intensity of dark chocolate balanced by the sweetness of brown sugar. With milk, you'll enjoy a comforting, gourmet coffee reminiscent of creamy fudge.

Tasting notes : Dark chocolate, Brown sugar, Almonds

Perfect Extraction

For this coffee, we suggest you set your machine so that: 18g of ground coffee gives you 36g of liquid coffee for a duration of between 25 and 30 seconds. A faster extraction (in 25 seconds) will give you a balanced acidity; a longer extraction (in 35 seconds) will give you more body without adding bitterness. This recipe was made on our espresso machine in our workshop and is to our taste, but is only a suggestion. We'll be delighted to answer any questions you may have about setting up your machine.

Bean origins

Grain de Chance is the fruit of a meticulous blend of beans from two renowned coffee-growing regions: Brazil and El Salvador.

Their farms cover more than 3,000 hectares, both in the Cerrado and in Minas Geiras, of which 986 are dedicated to production and more than 1,000 are registered conservation areas.
